The Montrose is an 18-story, 264-unit apartment building at 4334 N Hazel in the Buena Park section of the Uptown neighborhood. It was built in 1981 and is nearing completion of a substantial renovation. Jewel-Osco is on the ground floor of the building.
The Montrose, originally known as Pensacola Place, was designed by Tigerman McCurry Architects in a post-modern style. The balconies playfully evoke six Ionic columns.
The Montrose offers studio, 1- and 2-bedroom, 2-bath apartments, and 2-story 2-bedroom townhomes. Floor plans and near real-time rent and availability info are accessible online.
Kitchens and baths have been updated. Kitchens have stainless steel appliances, including built-in microwaves and dishwashers.
The apartments have large windows, plank flooring in living areas, and carpeted bedrooms. A number of the apartments have balconies.

The Montrose is in Uptown’s Buena Park neighborhood, several blocks north of Lakeview. Buena Park is a largely residential neighborhood dominated by low-rise buildings and single-family homes.
The Montrose is just west of Clarendon Park, and within easy walking distance of Lincoln Park’s Montrose Harbor and Montrose Beach.
Shopping. The Montrose has convenient access to grocery shopping, with a Jewel-Osco on the ground floor of the building.
A Ross Dress for Less is around the corner, and Target is just north on Broadway.
Dining, nightlife, entertainment. Residents are likely to head south along Broadway to the thriving dining and nightlife scene in Lakeview, or north to the Uptown entertainment district.
The Satellite Café, a few steps away on Montrose, is a popular local spot for coffee, tea and sandwiches.
Parks, recreation. The Montrose residents have outstanding access to public parks and recreational activities.
The 8-acre Clarendon Park has junior baseball and softball fields, tennis courts, a two-hoop basketball court, a dog-friendly area, a playground, and a field house that hosts a variety of activities. Soccer and football fields and a 9-hole golf course are just across Lake Shore Drive east of The Montrose.
Free Wi-Fi, a concession stand and volleyball nets are just a few of the draws at nearby Montrose Beach.
The 1,200-acre Lincoln Park, one of the great public spaces in America, is just east of The Montrose. Lincoln Park has almost every recreational amenity imaginable, from an archery range to a great free zoo.
Transportation. The Montrose has good access to public transportation.
Lake Shore Drive access is convenient. Crosstown access to I-90/94 and the city’s expressway grid is inconvenient from this location, and can be especially time-consuming before and after Cubs’ games.
